Nov 03, 2014 /prREACH/ -- ThirdLove, a chic and innovative lingerie brand that leverages patented mobile sizing technology, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnMobile Top 100 winners. Inclusion in the OnMobile 100 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. ThirdLove was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
This is the fifth honor ThirdLove has received since launching in late 2013. In September, AlwaysOn awarded the Company one of the Top Private Companies focused on mobile, and then in December, Mashable named ThirdLove a Top 10 App of 2013. In early 2014, ThirdLove was featured as a “Best New App” by Apple in the App Store, and in July of 2014, ThirdLove was named one of the AlwaysOn Global 250 Top Private companies. ThirdLove and the OnMobile Top 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s OnMobile event on November 14th, 2014, at AlwaysOn’s new headquarters at HelloStartUps in Menlo Park, CA.
This exclusive event gathers the Global Silicon Valley’s brightest minds at OnMobile for a lively exchange on the top trends and most lucrative entrepreneurial opportunities in mobile.
“The number of connected devices numbers in the billions, bringing the long-cherished vision of the Internet of Things into today’s reality. The synergistic relationship between mobile application deployment and cloud infrastructure is becoming the mainstay of the computing world - and opens up a new venue for innovation,” says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “This year’s OnMobile 100 winners represent the companies that are connecting devices, running vital consumer and enterprise applications, and propelling technology into the future. The Global Silicon Valley will continue to nurture the companies developing the products and services that bring users together wherever and whenever they are.”
The OnMobile 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2014 list.
